An artist I follow on twitter recently uploaded a video where they write some text on a piece of paper. Now, I understand some of it, but most of it I'm not good enough to read, and so I can't put it into google translate.

I'm looking for suggestions on how to approach translating in situations similar to this one where I can't use software due to handwriting being too bad for me to read.

I was hoping to get maybe suggestions for websites or communities in which I could get translations of videos very quickly, free or paid.

I am not providing the link to the video I want translated here anymore, to make it clear that I'm not asking for you to translate it.

Thank you in advance.

This question came from our site for students, teachers, and linguists wanting to discuss the finer points of the Japanese language.

  • The video won't load for me, so from my point of view this is unfortunately impossible to answer, on-topic or off-. – snailcar Oct 7 at 22:21

    I think you are better of trying a different community. E.g. reddit.com/r/translator – Christer Oct 7 at 22:28

    I removed the link to the text that I'm trying to translate, and I changed the question to more reflect that I'm not looking for a translation, rather I'm looking for suggestions on how to approach translating in situations similar to this one where I can't use software due to handwriting being too bad for me to read. I was hoping to get maybe suggestions for websites or communities in which I could get translations of videos very quickly, free or paid. – Ivan Pop-Jovanov Oct 8 at 0:31
  • @Christer Thank you for your suggestion! I posted the text on r/translator and got the translation within hours! Thank you for being the only person to actually give a constructive answer. If you can, please upgrade your comment into an answer so that I can mark the question as answered. – Ivan Pop-Jovanov Oct 8 at 8:29
  • I feel doing that would be inappropriate, but thanks for the offer. Glad someone helped you out though! :) – Christer Oct 8 at 9:41
  • Well, the question is how I would go about translating something like this, so you did answer it. I don't think it would be inappropriate. – Ivan Pop-Jovanov Oct 8 at 10:21

    This question is more suitable on the [meta] since they allow off-site resources on there. Wonder if mods are comfortable in migrating it... – Andrew T. Oct 8 at 12:00
